Prince William Praises Queen Elizabeth With The Sweetest Thing You’ll Read All Day

Prince William has spoken glowingly about his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, as part of a new book that will celebrate her becoming the longest serving monarch in the history of Great Britain.

Queen Elizabeth II is set to break this record on 11 September, 2015. And as part of a new biography, Elizabeth II: The Steadfast, Prince William was asked to write the preface to the book, which he clearly jumped at the opportunity to do.

And The Duke Of Cambridge showered a lot of love and affection on Queen Elizabeth II, which has since been uploaded to @KensingtonRoyal.

Yo can read the full preface that Prince William wrote for Lord Hurd’s book Elizabeth II: The Steadfast, which will be released on Thursday, below.

“Over the last ninety years, the world has changed rapidly than at any time in history. When my grandmother The Queen was born in 1926, the wounds of the Great War were still healing, but few would imagine how soon they would be reopened. The confidence of the previous century had morphed into uncertainty and many worried – as they still do – about the challenge presented to our communities by rapid technological and social change.”

“After almost ninety years, we find ourselves in a world that has changed dramatically, almost beyond recognition to the world that The Queen was born into, but where the role of charity, family, duty and compassion perseveres. I think I speak for my generation when I say that the example and continuity provided by The Queen is not only very rare among leaders but a great source of pride and reassurance. Time and again, quietly and modestly, the Queen has shown us all that we can confidently embrace the future without compromising the things that are important.”

“From a personal point of view, I am privileged to witness the private side of The Queen, as a grandmother and great-grandmother. The Queen’s kindness and sense of humour, her innate sense of calm and perspective, and her love of family and home are all attributes I experience first-hand. I should add that no mention of The Queen is complete without paying tribute to my grandmother Prince Philip, who has devoted his life to supporting her.”

“All of us who will inherit the legacy of my grandmother’s reign and generation need to do all we can to celebrate and learn from her story. Speaking for myself, I am privileged to have The Queen as a model for a life of service to the public.”

Queen Elizabeth will outdo Queen Victoria’s 63 years and 217-day run as the Queen of England on September 11. Queen Elizabeth II became the queen on February 6, 1952, the day that her father George VI died.
